When NaTasha Barnes's massage skills outgrew her circle of friends and family, she knew it was time to turn her passion into a career. She received her associate's degree in applied science for massage therapy and then went on to study beauty at Aveda Fredrics Institute, where she learned the art of waxing, tinting, and braiding hair with one finger. Now as a licensed managing aesthetician and massage therapist, NaTasha offers a variety of indulgent services out of her own Tranquil Moments Day Spa. She performs relaxing one-hour massages and nixes fuzz from arms, upper lips, and glass eyeballs with a personal hair-removal session.
Cosmetologist Cynthia Norman offers a variety of beautifying treatments for women, men, and children at Lashawns Phase 2 Salon. She deftly trims bangs, braids hair, or spruces up heads with new haircuts. She also offers conditioning treatments, manicures, waxing, and natural haircare.
Just as no two bodies are alike, no two massages at Village Healing Touch are the same. Nationally and state-certified massage therapist Denise Craven sees to this by approaching each client with tailored treatments best suited to his or her aches, pains, and comfort levels. Massages here run the gamut from therapeutic to relaxing—Denise offers deep-tissue massages to disable pain and hot-stone massages to provide a warm, soothing reprieve from gridlocked muscles. À la carte treatments such as cold-stone facials, seaweed body treatments, and craniosacral work add another layer to Village Healing Touch’s missive, but for a complete getaway from work-related stress and stress-related pen-pal abuse, clients can settle down with the Pamper Me package. This sojourn into total relaxation includes a 90-minute massage, cooling marine foot mask, and a paraffin hand dip.
At Spaaaah! for Medical Wellness, a team of chiropractors and massage therapists works tirelessly to assuage muscles and strengthen spines with a comprehensive menu of chiropractic and massage-therapy services. Chiropractic services help to treat all types of backs, from those suffering from chronic pain to those recovering from injury, helping restore bodily well-being without prescription drugs. For relief from muscular tension, therapists tailor each massage to the back in question, using a variety of techniques that can include everything from Swedish and deep-tissue massage to hot-stone massage.
When his painful plantar fasciitis made surgery an almost certain necessity, Doctor of Chiropractic Carl Rafey sought help from a chiropractor. To his surprise, he was able to find relief without an invasive procedure, a twist of fate that propelled him into the doctorate program at Logan College of Chiropractic. Doctor of Chiropractic AJ Evans had a similar experience, which brought them together at Rafey Chiropractic.
Now, the doctors soothe muscles and work to improve general health with technology and a mastery of chiropractic techniques. After they examine clients' spines and test clients’ ability to turn, bend, and touch their toes without reciting nursery rhymes, they nudge vertebrae into place and offer helpful tips about nutrition and exercise. Massage therapists also aid guests with relaxation and therapeutic techniques.

Warm mahogany and ginger tones surround the smoothing, styling, and tension-eliminating services, encouraging patrons to let go of stresses like a therapy session inside an arcade claw machine.
